One-on-One Writing Session

Sometimes we need a gentle shove in the write direction. If you are interested in one-on-one guidance on getting started, finding the heart of your material, translating your idea onto the page or continuing a work in progress, a one-on-one session might be just right for you. Individual sessions are tailored to meet your specific needs and are largely guided by you. They may include a combination of writing, talking, brainstorming, feedback, structure, and gentle guidance. These sessions are appropriate for beginners who've never taken a class or long time students who wish to dive deeper.

One-on-One Revision and Planning Session



Regardless of where you are in your writing journey, working with an editor is a great way to grow in your craft and your confidence. I offer hour-long sessions out of the L10 studio where we’ll work together to hone your style, brainstorm additional material, and move through roadblocks in your writing. Sessions are led by your goals, whether that is to complete an essay, work toward a full-length book, or simply learn more about your strengths as a writer.
